Weapons, Shields, Gear, etc...
 
So, I've been playing this game since it's release and have accumulated a lot of rare stuff in my bank. As I have always upgraded my gear when lvl up and the stuff that is bound to me I can't sell or give away. So anyway the other day I was going through it all and I've been noticing that some of my lower lvl gear is actually far better than the rare mark XI stuff I have equiped now. So I am wondering...is cryptic making the new stuff we get from missions, drops, etc less effective? I don't know if anyone else has noticed this or not. Also, another example I can give is the ghost buster gun we get from the Devidian mission.... I have one that is 34 DPS. But the one I got for one of my newer toons when I completed the mission today is 19 DPS. :confused:

The featured episode guns all scale with you, so it will be similar to a Mk X or XI at VA but say at start of Captain grade will be like a Mk VIII and slowly increase stats to Mk IX as you near RA.

Yes, some MarkXI items are slightly weaker than the MarkX one's. I do not exactly know why, possibly a change in whom ever designed the former?
